Dennis Ritchie – RIP
There are reports that Dennis Ritchie has died. He was one of the creators of the C programming language, and of the unix operating system.
I do not mourn his death – that comes to all of us. But I celebrate his life, which was a life of achievement. I consider him one of the computing greats. Everyone who has worked with computers has benefited in some ways from what Ritchie has given us.
